‘Prophet’ Who Kidnapped Lady Days To Her Wedding, Hid Her For Seven Months, Arrested
In other news, a self-proclaimed Prophet in Ogun State, simply identified as Pastor Sunday, has been arrested after allegedly kidnapping a lady days before her wedding.
In a statement made available to journalists on Tuesday, the State Police Command confirmed that the cleric, who is affiliated with a Cherubim and Seraphim Church in the Agbado area of Ogun State, had abducted his 21-year-old victim, identified as Aliu Blessing, seven months ago.
It was gathered that the victim had gone to the suspect to seek spiritual help for her ailing sister when the pastor prophesied that she would die on her wedding day if she refused to have sexual intercourse with him.
The pastor was also alleged to have claimed that any man who tried to have sexual intercourse or a relationship with her other than him would also die.
Following the alleged deception and prophecies, the pastor was said to have allegedly abducted the lady on February 2, 2023, to an unknown location, throwing the family into pain and disarray.
After over seven months of alleged abduction, the victim’s uncle, Aliu Yusuf, told the police that the family was shocked when Blessing, who returned home on November 5, 2023, narrated how Sunday took her to his family house in Ilaro and subsequently to a hotel, where he was alleged to have had multiple and unconsented sexual intercourse with her.
